Fancy Coffee Friday: Raw

The Amusing Muse Fancy Coffee Friday RawRaw.

Everything felt raw. The skin around my eyes and nose was red and chapped. It burned, ached, and felt like it would crack if any muscle in my face dared to move. My stomach was the same, it felt empty and full at the same time, but it ached. It, too, was raw.
